Saturday has sped up the process. Saturday appeared on 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis on Friday and said that he would be retiring after Sunday’s game.

Going out a Pro Bowler Laughing Great career, he is as smart and savvy as any player in the league but his body is gone. He would be a good fit on TV IMO.

Has anyone else ever retired after being selected to the Pro Bowl? It's got to be pretty rare. Yet another indictment of the Pro Bowl...

Best wishes to him in retirement. 1 of the better centres of all time in the NFL.

I think it was time for him. He's been a steady stalwart at his position forever though, and one of the better center's I've seen. Seems like a classy guy too.

Just a reminder Billy.



Saturday has enjoyed a very long career and at least was able to retire with a ring. He and Manning made for one of the best QB-C combos the league has probably ever seen.

Should have retired last year. He was terrible for the Packers. Great guy though and he deserves to go out with a PB simply for the great career he's had. Isn't the last we've heard of the man named Saturday though, he'll definitely be around as a FO man or a coach in some capacity.

Smart, he would be cut if not. Nice for him to end on a pro bowl even thought he got benched

Barry Sanders (naturally), and I'm sure a bunch of linemen have actually. Reputation carries those guys to an absurd number of pro bowls past their primes.

That's the MO with linemen....they get to the Pro Bowl a couple years later than they should and stick around a couple years longer than they should. Especially the interior guys.

Rodgers better have good balance.



Saturday's going out as he should, a Pro Bowler. One of the best, if not the best, centers of this generation.
